Celebrations bring joy in the ordinary and extraordinary. Share what you are celebrating at Ruth Ayres Writes. Notice the little things. See what delight you can find!
One: I am celebrating writing. Yes, real writing. I have been getting up in the mornings early enough to have devotions and write. Friday, as I was writing about my dog, an epiphany from the Lord overflowed my heart with so much joy my fingers flew on the written page. I love capturing the moment to reread and savor time and time again.
Two: I spent two and a half hours working with my principal in our schoolwide Title One plan during parent/teacher conferences. I can’t say the plan was thrilling, but sharing where our school has been was valuable. Reflecting with him on improvements needed and success to continue was enlightening. I still find it interesting that I had my new principal as a student when I first started teaching 20 years ago here in Indiana. Valuing each child is so important!
Three: Last week, Wes was home for fall break. I wrote my quick thoughts on notepaper in order to not lose the ideas (ever have this problem?). My picture documents my celebrations.
